[Phyxion] 9600GT recalled, 9800X2 delayed - Page 5

While it can affect the bandwidth, they seem to be finding increasingly amazing ways around it. Especially since the change from AGP to PCI-e... If I had to guess, I think thats when bus size became less important.

People believe that the newer cards 9xxx series with a 256bus won't be able to utilize a gig of video ram. While again, that was probably true 3-4 years ago, it's definately nottrue now. Games towards the end of this year and next will use that ram, and your only limiting factor won't be bus width, but memory bandwidth. What the card can push out it's rear end. If a card has a 128bit bus, but can push +100GB/s, thats a card I'd like to own.

I doubt there will be any step ups to the GX2, unless that's the only way they'll be able to move them

I think the GX2 will fall into the limited availability category.

so what they recalled, I have no clue. The source is also highly questionable.

I think you probably saw the Radeon 9800 series?

It isn't on their website and they typically don't carry high end cards.

I had always though limited availability referred to limited edition products. Like the video cards with the super duper cool waterblock.

Regardless, I don't think stepup is cost effective considering how much the make you pay!

He was right, they are in stock at Best Buy. And the 9600GT isnt a high end card. Best Buy also sells the 8800gt.


We had 2 9600GTs at Best Buy tonight when I went in.

No, it was a BFG OC'D 9600GT. They had 3 there. If ya search the forums a bit, all the best buy employees talk about stocking them on thier shelves etc...

Anything non reference(coolers, clock speeds), I wouldn't be surprised if Nvidia pulls the plug and leaves it up to their vendors on this one.
Didn't ATI do that with a card recently?
You're definitely right about it being cost effective especially with price/performance on the G92.
